We saw this grey heron over at Rooster Rock Beach along the Columbia River a few days ago. The sky was magnificent, as was he with his wings unfolding. I felt the bird and I have a connection. It got me thinking of this new phase in my life wherein I am finally released from other obligations and can focus on my art full time again.
